These are reference Open Educational Resources selected for residents in obstetrics and gynecology. This collection was developed in response to a request from the 1000+ OBGYN Consortium for supplemental learning materials for milestone topics based on the ACGME Milestones for OBGYN
This is a representative but not comprehensive collection of learning materials that are free to access, publicly available, and, in most cases, publicly licensed to allow copying and adaptation under certain conditions.
This is a preliminary collection compiled for the consortium. The collection will be revised and extended based on feedback from the consortium members.

Selected by:

  • Kathleen Ludewig Omollo, University of Michigan
  • Mike Brady, St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center
